So Cara thinks that I should let my frustration with Shit-Com Chic slide and move on to LACE. Cara, did you miss the point about the eyelets, the yarn-overs that I couldn't even handle on The Shit?? LACE??? Maybe I screwed up because every time I saw YO I had to make my neighborhood gang sign with my hands. LACE!!!! That must be why I messed up. Darlin' you do beautiful work with your scratchy-only-to-you-yarn. However, to get me to try lace (*again*) you would have to come to BOS to hold my hands while I attempted something like that. And the Harlot would have to send Screech. I would have to be talked to calmly. It would not be good.

Excuse me while I go bang my head up against a wall.


Now, let's move on to something equally as impossible. Climbing a Mountain.
Way back when - Rob and I spent our first anniversary in the Mountains of Colorado. This included "scrambling" up a peak outside of our cabin. Rob put together a great photo album of our whole trip, complete with captions. Check it out!

Ahhhh, your pictures made me want to go to CO - esp. since it was 101 here today (barf). It's funny to me how some places there all look alike - I swear I have that same picture of "bullwinkle" from my summer vacation!
And now I have proof that I'm not the only vacationing/knitting/reading/drinking/sitting by the campfire girl.
14 books? Impressive - I managed 13 (on my honeymoon! perhaps not something to brag about......)

See, Margene says you can do it and she's the bomb. If she says it, it's true.

You're absolutely right though. I was completely NOT paying attention. I was just so happy to see that you were alive and well and posting and I'm still in the glow of my diamond fantasy that I could really care less what you actually wrote. Just that you wrote. I love you and all your elk bretheren.

(And truly I was angling for the invite to come hold your hand.)

i think that if I can manage yarn overs, that YOU could definitely handle yarn overs. maybe us MHCknitters can bribe you to visit again by saying we'll help? and then BF can model for us as soon as it's done! (see how that works out?)

Awesome pictures, Wendy. I loves me some good photography. Between the pictures and the lace I think we're on the same page this week, bookish girl.

I love that slideshow - thanks for sharing!

Ha-ha - I am still laughing about the lace. I started a lace project, put it down (middle of a row, no less), and then completely forgot what pattern I was using or what I was making.

Glad you are back. I was getting the shakes. (needed my Wendy fix)
Very cool pictures. You showed us the Darryls, where was the Larry?
And I must say, I almost pissed my pants at the Continental Divide picture. Need I say more?

Love the pictures! I am so glad that while growing up in CO, I never took the environment for granted... I realized how great it all was then, and miss it even more now :) Hope all is well.

You are being very silly, of course you can knit lace. Of course, whenever I am reading a lace pattern, in my head it's always 'yo'. I didn't realize it until I was reading same directions out loud to some one and I said Yo, knit 2 together, and every body laughed. Haters. LOL !
But I am really commenting to say I has just finished the Human Stain. I had ignored Roth for some time, but I was intrigued by the plot and decided to pick it up. I was brought up in that part of New Jersey and I( My father, actually) had relatives who "passed" I thought the writing was brillant and the story marveosly complex.

You could knit lace. Really. The first couple rows are really confusing, and then suddenly it all makes sense. I can do it, and I can't even count. (I can't. At all reliably.)

You should try it.

Besides, either way, you would have lots to post about, and you can always blame everything on us.

YO! What did I deserve to get such a wonderful package? Breathe, or something? Win a contest requiring breathing/uselessly existing/showing up/blabbing? I'm loving the CDs especially but so much great loot in that box! From the size of the box I thought you might have sent me the Pig! Speaking of the Pig, watch out for INCOMING. Thanks for making my day. I love that Art yarns stuff. I do believe I will make myself a multi-directional scarf as you suggest. Perfect yarn for it. I'll make it at night with my booklight. Thanks, doll, you're too generous. love, Kay

I enjoyed your pictures of Colorado. I knitted while looking at the slide show. Have not been to Colorado, but pictures made me want to visit.
